Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: rapid fire: my top 3 "5 star" shows

try me:

August 17th, 1970.

An evening with the Grateful Dead and The New Riders.

(the 3 songs may not even be from the 17th!)

June 4th, 1970:

and it was actually April 11th 1970, not the 10th
that I'm pretty sure I went to my first GD show...
I'm pretty certain they ended the night with Saint Stephen and Lovelight:

Set 1:
Cold Rain And Snow
I'm A King Bee
Beat It On Down The Line
Dire Wolf
It's A Man's World

Set 2:
Don't Ease Me In
New Speedway Boogie
Friend Of The Devil
Me And My Uncle
Deep Elem Blues
Black Peter
Uncle John's Band

Set 3:
Dark Star
St. Stephen
Not Fade Away
Turn On Your Love Light

Great version of Lovelight!
I was at all 3 of these life-affirming, evolutionary 5 star gigs.

Proof is in the snippets that exist for these 3 shows.

Believe me if you you need to, 5 Stars and that's no lie.
